Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft ein Paneel, insbesondere Fußbodenpaneel, wobei das Paneel viereckig und tafelförmig ausgebildet ist und wobei an den Schmalseiten des Paneels Halteprofile angeordnet sind, nämlich erste und zweite Halteprofile, wobei gegenüberliegend angeordnete Halteprofile derart zueinander passen, dass mehrere Paneele miteinander verbindbar sind, wobei die gegenüberliegend angeordneten ersten Halteprofile so ausgebildet sind, dass an einem in erster Reihe liegenden Paneel in zweiter Reihe ein neues Paneel verriegelbar ist, indem das neue Paneel zunächst in Schrägstellung relativ zu dem liegenden Paneel an das liegende Paneel angefügt und nachfolgend in die Ebene des liegenden Paneels herabgeschwenkt wird, und wobei die gegenüberliegend angeordneten zweiten Halteprofile korrespondierende Hakenelemente aufweisen, wobei mit einem der Hakenelemente des neuen Paneels und einem Hakenelement eines bereits in zweiter Reihe liegenden Paneels durch das Herabschwenken des neuen The invention relates to a panel, in particular floor panel, wherein the panel is formed rectangular and tabular in shape and being arranged on the narrow sides of the panel holding profiles, namely first and second retaining profiles, said oppositely disposed retaining profiles match each other such that a plurality of panels are connected to one another, wherein oppositely disposed first holding profiles are constructed so that in a lying in the first row panel in the second row a new panel can be locked by the new panel initially added in an inclined position relative to the lying panel to the lying panel and subsequently, in the plane of the lying the panel is pivoted down, and wherein the oppositely arranged second holding profiles having corresponding hook elements, wherein the new one of the hook elements of the new panel and a hook element of an already lying in the second row panel by pivoting down Paneels eine Hakenverbindung herstellbar ist. producible panel a hook connection.
  • Ein einfaches Paneel mit einem Befestigungssystem ist aus der A simple panel with a mounting system is known from DE 199 29 896 A1 DE 199 29 896 A1 und der and the WO 01/02669 A1 WO 01/02669 A1 bekannt. known. Charakteristisch ist für ein solches Befestigungssystem, dass die verwendeten ersten und zweiten Halteprofile stark unterschiedliche Geometrien aufweisen und sich dadurch auch die Fügeweisen der verschiedenartigen Halteprofile sehr unterscheiden. It is characteristic of such a fastening system, that the first and second holding profiles used have very different geometries and therefore very well be different, the joining of the various ways retaining profiles. Insbesondere die als Hakenelemente ausgebildeten zweiten Halteprofile, die zu einer Hakenverbindung zusammengefügt werden, bergen ein technisches Problem. In particular, the hook elements formed as second retaining profiles, which are joined to a hook connection, pose a technical problem. Zwar sichert die bekannte Hakenverbindung Fußbodenpaneele gut gegen ebenes Auseinanderschieben rechtwinklig zu den Schmalseiten der verbundenen Paneele. Although the known hook coupling floor panels ensures good against plane pushed apart at right angles to the narrow sides of the connected panels. Allerdings bietet sie keine befriedigende Festigkeit gegen ein Lösen der Hakenelemente in einer Richtung senkrecht zu der Verlegeebene der Paneele. However, it does not provide satisfactory resistance against disengagement of the hook members in a direction perpendicular to the laying plane of the panels.
  • Bevorzugt angewendet wird ein derartiges Befestigungssystem für sogenannten Laminatfußboden, der einen Kern aus Holzwerkstoff, wie MDF, HDF oder Spanplattenmaterial aufweist. is preferably applied such a fastening system for so-called laminate floors, having a core made from wood material, such as MDF, HDF or chipboard material. Die mechanischen Halteprofile sind zumeist an die Schmalseiten von Holzwerkstoffplatten angefräst. The mechanical retaining profiles are mostly milled on the narrow sides of wood-based panels.
  • Laminatfußboden wird überwiegend schwimmend verlegt. Laminate flooring is laid mostly floating. Zur Minderung von Trittschall wird üblicherweise eine trittschalldämmende Zwischenlage zwischen dem Verlegeuntergrund und den Laminatpaneelen angeordnet. For reducing impact noise, a footstep sound-insulating intermediate layer between the base surface and the laminate panels is typically disposed. Auch bekannt ist es, dass eine trittschalldämmende Schicht an der dem Verlegeuntergrund zugewandten Unterseite von Laminatpaneelen fest angebracht ist. Also, it is known that an impact sound insulating layer at the side facing the base surface of lower laminate panels is fixedly attached.
  • Besonders problematisch ist die Hakenverbindung des bekannten Befestigungssystem dann, wenn im Bereich einer Hakenverbindung nur dasjenige Paneel mit einer großen Last beaufschlagt ist, dessen Hakenelement unten liegt, nämlich dem Verlegeuntergrund zugewandt ist. Particularly problematic the hook connection of the known attachment system, then if only that panel is applied with a large load in the region of a hook connection, the hook element is located below, namely, facing the subfloor. Das mit diesem verhakte obenliegende Hakenelement des benachbarten Paneels ist nicht belastet daher wird durch die Last nur das Paneel mit dem untenliegenden Hakenelement in die zumeist weiche trittschalldämmende Zwischenlage gedrückt. The overhead with this hooked hook element of the adjacent panel is not charged therefore is forced through the load only the panel with the underlying hook element in the mostly soft contact noise attenuating liner. Dabei löst sich das obenliegende Hakenelement des unbelasteten Paneels aus dem untenliegenden Hakenelement des benachbarten Paneels. In this case, the overhead hook element of the uncompressed panel from the underlying hook element of the adjacent panel dissolves. Die Hakenverbindung ist außer Funktion und die Funktion meist nicht wieder herstellbar. The hook connection is disabled and the function is not usually recoverable.
  • Nach dem Stand der Technik sind Hinterschneidungen in die Hakenverbindung integriert, durch die ein Lösen der Hakenverbindung senkrecht zur Verlegeebene der Paneele verhindert werden soll. According to the prior art undercuts are integrated in the hook connection, by the release of the hook connection is to be prevented perpendicularly to the laying plane of the panels. Diese Hinterschneidungen haben sich jedoch als unzureichend erwiesen, dieser Art von Befestigungselementen eine ausreichende Festigkeit zu verleihen. These undercuts, however, have proved to be inadequate to provide sufficient strength to these types of fasteners.
  • Weiteren Stand der Technik bildet die Furthermore, prior art forms the WO 96/27719 A WO 96/27719 A , die ein Panel mit einer Sperre betrifft, wobei eine Nut / Feder Verbindung vorgesehen ist sowie ein Mittel, mit dem ein Lösen der Nut / Feder Verbindung verhindert werden soll. Which relates to a panel with a lock, wherein a groove / spring connection is provided as well as a means by which release of the groove / spring connection is to be prevented.

  • WO 00/47841 A WO 00/47841 A schlägt ein Paneel mit vier Kanten vor. proposes a panel with four edges. Je zwei gegenüberliegende Kanten sind komplementär ausgebildet. Depending two opposing edges are formed complementary. Eine Ausführungsform umfasst ein zusätzliches Sperrelement mit federelastischen Eigenschaften. One embodiment includes an additional locking element with spring-elastic properties. Komplementäre Kanten der Paneele werden durch eine Absenkbewegung eines der Paneele miteinander verbunden. Complementary edges of the panels are connected together by a lowering movement of one of the panels.
  • Aus der From the US 5,274,979 A US 5,274,979 A sind isolierende Platten mit Kanten bekannt, die formschlüssig ineinander passen. insulating panels with edges are known which fit form-fitting into each other. Eine Ausführungsform umfasst ein Element (engaging member), das in einer Ausnehmung verbundener Platten Platz findet und die Platten in der Verlegeebene zusammenhält. One embodiment includes a member (engaging member) that is in a recess of connected plates square and holds the plates in the laying plane.
  • WO 99/66151 A WO 99/66151 A betrifft ein Schließsystem für Fußbodenpaneele mit Nut- und Feder-Verbindung, wobei mehrer vertikale Ebenen definiert sind, um die Gestaltung der Feder und der Nut zu definieren. relates to a locking system for floor panels with tongue and groove connection, whereby several vertical levels are defined in order to define the design of the spring and the groove.
  • WO 01/75247 A WO 01/75247 A ist früher angemeldet als die vorliegende Erfindung, jedoch nach deren Anmeldtag veröffentlicht worden und daher ohne Bedeutung für die Frage der erfinderischen Tätigkeit. earlier registered as the present invention, however, been released after their Anmeldtag and therefore irrelevant to the question of inventive step. Die Veröffentlichung beschreibt einen Bodenbelag aus plattenförmigen quadratischen oder rechteckigen Bodenelementen. The publication describes a floor covering of plate-shaped square or rectangular floor elements. Jedes Bodenelement weist zwei Arten komplementärer Halteprofile auf, wovon ein Paar mit einer Drehbewegung verbindbar ist und das andere Paar gleichzeitig vertikal montiert wird. Each floor element comprises two types of complementary holding profiles, of which a pair can be connected to a rotary movement and the other pair is mounted at the same time vertically.
  • Aus der From the WO 01/51732 A1 WO 01/51732 A1 ist ein gattungsgemäßes Befestigungssystem bekannt, das ein zusätzliches Sperrelement aufweist. discloses a generic fastening system having an additional blocking element. Das Sperrelement muss nach erfolgter Verriegelung der Hakenelemente nachträglich an der Verbindungsstelle eingefügt werden. The locking element must be inserted later at the connection point after the locking of the hook elements. Dies erfordert einen zusätzlichen Arbeitsgang. This requires an additional operation. Ferner bereitet die Montage des Sperrelementes dann Probleme, wenn eine Paneelreihe sehr nah vor einer Wand liegt. Furthermore, the mounting of the locking element prepares problems when a row of panels is very close to a wall. Für das Sperrelement ist kein ausreichender Platz vorhanden, um es an der Verbindungsstelle einzufügen. Not enough space available for the locking element to insert it at the junction.
  • Der Erfindung liegt die Aufgabe zugrunde, ein Paneel für ein Befestigungssystem vorzuschlagen, wobei mit zwei Paneelen eine Hakenverbindung herstellbar ist, die sich auch dann nicht löst, wenn auf dem Paneel mit dem untenliegenden Hakenelement eine Last aufsteht und das obenliegende Hakenelement des benachbarten Paneels ohne Last ist. The invention has the object to provide a panel for a fastening system, wherein two panels a hook connection can be produced, which also does not dissolve when a load rests on the panel with the underlying hook element and the overhead hook element of the adjacent panel without load is.
  • Erfindungsgemäß wird die Aufgabe dadurch gelöst, dass ein zusätzliches Sperrelement an einem der Hakenelemente vormontiert ist, und dass das zusätzliche Sperrelement im verhakten Zustand zweier Paneele ein Lösen der Hakenverbindung in einer Richtung senkrecht zu der Ebene der verlegten Paneele unterbindet, wobei das Sperrelement als Krallstück ausgebildet ist und im verhakten Zustand zweier Paneele zwischen sich hintergreifenden Hakenflächen der Hakenelemente angeordnet ist, wobei das Krallstück Krallelemente aufweist, die im verhakten Zustand zweier Paneele in die Oberfläche der Hakenflächen greifen und eine vertikale Auseinanderbewegung der Hakenelemente verhindern. According to the invention the object is achieved in that an additional blocking element is pre-assembled on one of the hook elements, and that the additional locking element in the hooked state of two panels prevents release of the hook connection in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the installed panels, wherein the locking element is designed as a claw component and is arranged in the hooked state of two panels therebetween interlocking hook surfaces of the hook members, wherein the claw piece has claw elements, which engage in hooked state of two panels in the surface of the hook surfaces, and prevent vertical separation of the hook elements. Bei dem Sperrelement kann es sich um ein sehr einfaches Bauteil handeln, für das es vielfältige konstruktive Ausgestaltungen gibt. The locking member may be a very simple component for which there are various structural embodiments. Es kann sich um ein Sperrelement handeln, das an einem der Hakenelemente vormontiert ist oder um ein loses Sperrelement. It can be a locking element, which is pre-assembled on one of the hook elements or a loose locking element.
  • Vorzugsweise ist zwischen den sich hintergreifenden Hakenflächen ein Zwischenraum für das Krallstück vorgesehen, damit zu starke Zwängungen zwischen den Hakenelementen vermieden werden. Preferably, a space for the claw piece is provided between the interlocking hook areas so that excessive constraints between the hook elements are avoided.
  • Weiterhin ist es nützlich, wenn das Krallstück in einer dafür vorgesehenen Ausnehmung des von der Schmalseite hervorstehenden und der Oberseite des Paneels zugewandten Hakenelements arretiert ist und im montierten Zustand der Hakenverbindung beginnend an der Ausnehmung bis über die Hakenfläche an dem von der Schmalseite hervorstehenden und der Oberseite des Paneels zugewandten Hakenelement angeschmiegt ist. Furthermore, it is useful if the claw piece is locked into a provided recess of the protruding of the narrow side and facing the top side of the panel hook member, and beginning in the assembled state of the hook connection of the recess to beyond the hook surface on the projecting from the narrow side and the upper side of the panel facing hook element is nestled.
  • Einfacherweise kann die Ausnehmung für das Krallstück an dem Teil des von der Schmalseite hervorstehenden und der Oberseite des Paneels zugewandten Hakenelements angeordnet sein, der das korrespondierende Hakenelement hintergreift, wobei die Öffnung der Ausnehmung an einer Fläche des von der Schmalseite hervorstehenden und der Oberseite des Paneels zugewandten Hakenelements angeordnet ist, die zum Verlegeuntergrund gewandt ist, und wobei das Krallstück im montierten Zustand der Hakenverbindung derart umgebogen ist, dass es zwischen die sich hintergreifenden Hakenflächen ragt. Conveniently, the recess for the claw piece at the part of protruding from the narrow side and facing the top side of the panel hook member may be disposed, which engages behind the corresponding hook member, wherein the opening of the recess facing a surface of the projecting from the narrow side and the upper side of the panel is arranged hook element, which is turned towards the base surface, and wherein the claw piece is bent in the assembled state of the hook connection in such a way that it extends between which engage behind hook surfaces.
  • Die Handhabung des Krallstücks vereinfacht sich dadurch, dass es L-förmig ausgebildet ist, und dass ein erster Schenkel des L-förmigen Krallstücks in der Ausnehmung des von der Schmalseite hervorstehenden und der Oberseite des Paneels zugewandten Hakenelements einsetzbar ist und ein zweiter mit den Krallelementen versehener Schenkel in Richtung der Hakenfläche desselben Hakenelements weist. The handling of the claw component is simplified by the fact that it is L-shaped, and that a first leg of the L-shaped claw component in the recess of the protruding of the narrow side and facing the top side of the panel hook member can be inserted and a second with the claw members-provided leg has in the direction of the hook surface of the same hook member. Dabei wird letzterer Schenkel während der Montage automatisch in den Zwischenraum der sich hintergreifenden Hakenflächen hineingebogen. In this latter leg is automatically bent into the intermediate space which engage behind hook surfaces during assembly.
  • Ein Paneel mit einem erfindungsgemäßen Befestigungssystem weist zwei unterschiedliche Arten miteinander zusammenwirkender Halteprofile auf. A panel with a fastening system according to the invention has two different types of cooperating retaining profiles. Diejenigen Halteprofile, über die die einzelnen Verlegereihen eines Fußbodens miteinander verriegelt sind, weisen Halteprofile auf, die nach dem Prinzip: Schräges Ansetzen eines neuen Paneels und anschließendes Herabschwenken desselben verriegelt werden. Those holding sections, via which the individual laying of a floor rows are interlocked, have retaining profiles, which according to the principle to be locked thereof Bias application of a new panel and then pivoted downward. Die hierfür benötigte Art Halteprofil ermöglicht es, ein neues Paneel durch eine scharnierartige Schwenkbewegung an einer verlegten Paneelreihe mechanisch zu verriegeln. The required for this type retaining profile makes it possible to lock a new panel mechanically by a hinge-like pivot movement of a laid panel row. Die einzelnen Paneelreihen sind dadurch gegen ebenes Auseinanderziehen in einer Richtung senkrecht zu den verriegelten Halteprofilen gesichert. The individual rows of panels are secured against pulling apart planar in a direction perpendicular to the locked retaining profiles.
  • An den übrigen beiden Schmalseiten eines Paneels sind Halteprofile in Form von Hakenelementen angebracht, wobei ein erstes Hakenelement von der Schmalseite hervorsteht und im verlegten Zustand dem Verlegeuntergrund zugewandt ist und das zweite Hakenelement von der Schmalseite hervorsteht und der dekorativen Oberseite des Paneels zugewandt ist. Holding profiles in the form of hook elements are attached to the remaining two narrow sides of a panel, wherein a first hook member from the narrow side protrudes in the installed state faces the base surface and projecting the second hook member from the narrow side and facing the decorative top side of the panel. Beide Hakenelemente einer Hakenverbindung sind durch ein zusätzliches Sperrelement gegen ein Auseinanderbewegen senkrecht zur Ebene der verlegten Paneele gesichert. Both hook members of a hook connection are secured by an additional locking element from moving apart perpendicular to the plane of the installed panels.
